The A Little Night(hawk) Music Concert Series will open the spring season with a performance entitled a “Dedication to My Father” presented by UNG Faculty member, Dr. Joanna Kim. The inspiration for this program came after Dr. Kim learned of her father’s diagnosis with stage 3 cancer. The program illustrates her initial rejection of the news that moved to confusion, anger, and, ultimately, sadness. It concludes with the final Widmug by Franz Liszt, Song of Love, which is dedicated to her father. Come join us for this virtual performance via the UNG Department of Music YouTube Chanel on Monday, February 1, 2021 at 7:30pm. For additional information, please contact the UNG Department of Music at 706-864-1423 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The 2020-2021 A Little Night(hawk) Music Concert Series continues with MULTIFACETED, the debut performance of UNG’s faculty piano trio. The group, featuring professors Dr. Joanna Kim, piano, Dr. Serena Scibelli, violin, and Dr. Philip Snyder, cello, formed in 2020 and showcases just how versatile chamber music can be. Its members hail from three different countries: South Korea, Italy, and America, and the pieces they will perform on MULTIFACETED were composed in Argentina, France, and the USA. Astor Piazzola’s Argentine tango-driven Four Seasons will highlight the group’s passionate virtuosity, while Gabriel Faure’s Piano Trio in D minor, op. 120 will offer the shimmery haziness of the French Impressionist style. The concert will be rounded off by a medley from George Gershwin’s crowd pleasing opera “Porgy and Bess,” as well as a soothing, mysterious lullaby by American composer Kenji Bunch, entitled “Whispers: Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac.” Come join us for this virtual concert experience to be aired on Monday, November 2, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. A link for the performance can be found on the events calendar of the UNG Music Department Website and we encourage you to pre-register your attendance for the event.
